#WRITEPHOTO – Seahorse by Raven

A truly beautiful and breathtaking entry by Jez.

Before my journey to me
I carried you sweet child
taking morning sickness in my stride
burying deep what had to be denied
briefly wishing I could be dad

This is just a short extract, please take a moment to pop over to Raven’s site to read the full verse:

#WRITEPHOTO – Seahorse by pensitivity101

An informative entry by pensitivity101

I never realised how small sea horses were until I saw them in the oceanarium in Poole.
These tiny creatures are so graceful as they glide through the water, but if you don’t know they’re there, you can easily overlook them.
It is the male that nurtures the eggs to maturity, and after between 9 and 45 days he gives birth to an average of 100 to 1000 live young for most species (thank you WIKI (source)).

Spelling

Do you ever google spelling or grammar?

I used to be quite confident in my spelling but either I get worse at it each year or I’m more aware of my mistakes, either way, the confidence is gone!

We use some American products at work, so I sometimes accidentally use Americanised English.

I do use Grammarly add-in which is excellent and captures a lot of typos but I’ve never found a fool-proof spell-checker (does such a thing exist).

My most recent Google – is it a historic or an historic?

Well, I lived in Yorkshire for many years and they probably would say istoric – lol.

Take Care.

Freedom – Flash Fiction

Rod walked through the gate and put his worn satchel on the floor. He calculated how much money he had left and hoped it would be enough to last him. The big question – what’s next? – circulated around in his head. Focus on the now, he thought, the priority is to get home to my wife and kids. The rest could wait.

A car screeched down the road and then skidded to a halt at the curbside. The window wound its way down and his brother’s smiling face emerged.

“Jump in, brother! Freedom awaits you.”

What is Freedom? He wondered.

Originally Written for Carrot Ranch Writing Prompt.

June 20, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about what freedom feels like. Whose point of view do you use? Does the idea of freedom cause tension or bring hope? Let the reader feel the freedom. Go where the prompt leads!

Tile Tales – Dazzling

Dazzling by KL Caley

QOTD – What simple thing do you find dazzling?


Today’s tale was made with the Nature Kit.


Want to play along?

I love playing around with the magnetic poetry blocks.
I’m no poetry writer so I prefer to create a short story of sorts.
The kits can be found here (and they are free):
